MSSION TO THE CREEK INDIANS 



A portion of the Creek nation, numbering between 2,500 and 3,000 souls, 
emigrated, 1327-1330 froa their old country to the region at the confluence of 
the Arkansas and Vei^gris rivers* Having to some extent been instructed by- 
Baptist and ^iethodist missionaries, they now resorted for instruction to the 
missionaries of the Aaerican Board among the Osages, frorfl whom they were sep- 
irated by. a distance of tv^enty miles only. In response to this application, 
"r. Vaill and Mr. Kontgoaeiy of that mission, devoted a portion of their time 
to labors ainong the emigrant Creeks, as early as 1823, and with very encourag- 
ing results. A church was organized among them, Sept. 12, 1350, consisting 

' 50 members; increased in a fev? months to eighty. The consequence was the 
fc'^^- establishnent of a mission among them in 1332. The expectations they 
raised, however, were not answered; opposition arose in the band, especially 
acong those of mixed blood, and the mission was abandoned in 1337.

The V7ay wcs prepared in a reraarl-able niannsr for the establishment of 

this mission by the conversion; about the year 1028, of several of the 
gentlemen engaged in the fur trade v/ith the Indians in the country lying 
£OUth-~est and v/est of Lake Superior. These gentlemen , in their annual 
visits at I'.Iackinav;, had vatnessed the operations of the mission established 
at that trading post in 1825, and became very desirous that a similar mis- 
sion might be commenced among the Indians on the farther shore of that 
great LaJie ; and made very generous offers towards the expense of such a 
^..aission. On their visit to iiickinaT?, early in the summer of 1830, they 
cane fully prepared to carry back with them the missionaries v/ho might be 
designated by the ."imerican Board (or its committee) in pursuance of encourage- 
ment held out to them the previoiis year. * To preclude a similar disappoint- 
ment, vigorous efforts were used to have missionaries in readiness in June 

1831 . 

The tribe of Indians, nov/ knovm as the Ojibv/as, were formerly called 
Chippev/ays. The mission vras transferred to the Presb. Board 1870. 

lir, Frederic Ayer opened a small school for these Indians at La Pointe 
on i.!agdalen Island, near the south-xest shore of Laiie Superior, in the 
auturon of 1830. 

*T.-.o of them offered each to support one missionary'- at his trading post. 
'^, barren brought to Llackinav; in June 1330 an extra boat, manned and fur- 
s' nished for the purpose of conveying a mission family up the lake to his 
post. Four of the traders vrere admitted to the church in I.iickinaw in 
July 1830.

union of that Society v;ith the A. B.C. P.M. in 1326, transferred to the Amer-

It vras chiefly intended as a school for the education of Indian children 
collected from a great variety of places about the Upper Lakes and the head 
raters of the Mississippi. The necessity viiich called this school into 
existence being removed by the opening of other schools among the various 
ti*ibes in that quarter, the I.Iackinaw mission was discontinued late in the

•MSSION to the STOCKBnlDGE IIIDIAI^IS 



A body of Ilohcgan Indians settled in what is now the town of Stockbridge * 
Lixss. in or near the year 1734, They were favored with the labors of Sergeant 
and Edwards, and a large church vras gathered. Edwards was there from Avi^. 
1751 to Jan. 1753. From tiice to time, some of the Iroquois Indians also 
joined that settlenent. In the Revolutionary v/ar, they took part vath the 
/jnsricans. Hendrick, one of their chiefs assisted at the capture of Burgoyne, 
In 178S, thsy removed to the vicinity of Oneida Lalce, and called their loca- 
tion l^ev Stocldjridge. In process of time, from lack of suitable instruction, 
religion languished, and a new church was gathered in 1818, consisting of 
eleven members. A school was established among them in Lir. Sergeant's day, 
"jjim a donation by lir. Hollis of London, which has been continued, with some 
interruptions, to the present time. Nearly all the people understand English, 
and can read the Bible; and nearly every family has a Bible and hymn book. 

Between the years 1822 and 1329, this interesting people removed from 
Central New York to the banks of Fox river, in the state of Wisconsin. They 
number about 300 persons, temperate, orderly and industrious. 

Rev. John Sergeant, born 1710 a native of Newark N.J. grad, Yale Coll. 
1729, was ordi at Deerfield,Ius; aid afterwards became pastor at Stockbridge,

On the river Maurce, sometimes called the I/dani of the Lakes, near 
Fort I.reigs, ia Wood County, in the N.¥. part of Ohio, about twenty-five 
miles fi-ora Lake Erie. 

The mission vzas commenced in 1822 by the Synod of Pittsburgh, and 
transferred Oct. 25, 1825 to the United Foreign L'lissionary Society. On 
the union of that Society in June 1826, with the A.B.C.F.M, this mission 
came under the direction of the Society last named. The Indians residing 
in the vicinity vrere chiefly Ottawas, though the school contained also 
children from the Ojibwa, V.'yandot, Patawatomi, Lliaml, and Shawanee tribes. 
The mission ■jras virtually brought to a close in April 1834,

IJISSIONS TO I\T)i;J'IS IN JEV7 YOKX 



SoEe raranants of the once poT/erftil confederacy of the Iroquois, or Six 
Nations, are found near BirTfalo and the river Niagara. They live on reserva- 
tions, secured to them hy treaties of lone standing. About four miles east 
of Le\-aston, in Niagara Co. N.Y. is the Tuscarora Reservation. Here a mis- 
sion was coranenced by the New York Uttssionary Society, one of the oldest 
institutions of the kind in this country, about the year 1801, ard a church 
was gathered in 1805. This mission was transferred to the United Foreign 
I/issionary Society in January 1821. 

In Decenber 1820, ;vhen this transfer was in contemplation, Rev. Stephen 
r. Rowan of New York and Rev. Henry R. Strong of Phelps, N.Y. visited the 
Tuscarora Reservation to obtain the assent of all parties concerned. They 
found there a missionary, Rev. James C. Crane, and a church of seventeen 
members. They next proceeded to another Reservation, four miles east of 
Buffalo, where they held a consultation with the remnants of the Seneca, 

Onondaga, and Cayuga tribes residing thereon, and v/ith J.lr. Jabei* B. Hyde, 
catechist, and James Young, teacher. But though it is said that a mission 
was in 1811 commenced here by the N.Y. Ivliss. Soc. these delegates, nine 
years afterv/ard, found no preacher of the gospel, and no mission family. 
And it seems from the account we have of the visit, that none had ever been 
seen on the Reservation. Two marriages were solemnized there by the Rev. 
delegates; the first instances, we are assured, of Christian marriage in the 
tribe. The Indians declared their readiness to receive a minister of the 
^spel, and a minister was accordingly sent, via Rev. Thompson S. Harris in 
Nov. 1822. 

'The true comip.encement of the Seneca mitision, therefore, was in the year

1822 under the auspices of the United Foreign rissionary Societj--. A church 
v/as organized April 13, 1823 to which four of the young chiefs v.-ere admitted. 
The Cattaraugus mission was commenced in 1822 by the same Society; the church 
was organized in July, 1827. 

The school at Tuscarora was commenced in 1805. 

7?hen the U.F.M.S. was merged in the A.B.C.F.M. in July 3» 1826, these 
missions were transferred to that body. 

The station at Allegany was first occupied by a teacher and a church 
organized in 1830. The Tuscarora branch of this mission was 

discontinued in 1850.

I,'!ISSIOM to the ABFI^IAOUIS INDIAHS 



The Abenaquis Indians, until excluded 'oy the white settlers, were 
seated on the Kennebec River, and roamed over the whole territory now forming 
the State of "aine, at least as far vvestward as Saco. A remnant of this tribe 
exists in Eastern Canada, on the south side of that expansion of the river 
St. Laurence which bears the name of Lake St. Peter's, about sixty miles 
belov/ I.!ontreai, numbering in 1355, about four hundred souls. The tribe 
early caae under Roman Catholic influence, and so remains. Osunkhlrhine, 
the only Protestant missionary ever sent to this tribe, v/as one of their 
number. Their location is often called St. Francis. 

A tivc Preacher 

Peter Paul Osun.-ihirhinc, a native of the St. Francis or Abenaquis tribe 
of Indians, acquired a knowledge of the English language, and a good English 
education, at Hanover, N.H. where he became hopefully pious, and united v.-ith 
the church of Christ. Having an earnest desire to be useful to his countiy- 
men, he established a school among them about 18."'0; prepared an elementary 
school book, and a religious tract in their language, v.'hich v/ere printed at 
the expense of the Board; vras appointed a missionary of the Board, Nov. 17, 
1855; received license to preach from the Presbytery of Champlain, January 
1336; and v;as ordained by the same body, in June follovdng. He labored 
among his people with some success, but amid great opposition and discourage- 
cent, till 1358, when he asked and obtained a release. He had a wife. In 
1361, he v.'as laboring among the Tuscarora Christian Indians. r?hile at St. 

"ancis, he translated and printed the Gospel of L'ark, and gathered a church 

of sixty six members. Died Fort Gratiot, Mich. 1374.

mSSION to the IKT>i;uJ AriCIII?EL;.CK) 

Under this designation are included the islands of Sumatra, Java, 
Celebes, Borneo, the Moluccas or Spice Islands, together with the Sooloo 
group northeast of Borneo, and some smaller islands west of Sumatra. Sir 
Thomas Stamford Raffles had given an account of the populations on these 
islands, •' which had greatly encouraged the hopes of the friends of missions. 

The missionaries immediately to be named were sent out by the Board 
chiefly for the purpose of exploration.

Sa^auel IvTunsOD was born at Nev; Sharon in JJaine, tlarch 23, 1804. His parents, 
Sanuel and Elizabeth Munson, emigrated to that place from the county of 
Barnstable, Llass. (perhaps from Orleans) a few years previous. They were 
members of the Congregational Chvu-ch, and died within a meek of each other, 
when Samuel, their youngest child, was but ten years old. After that time, 
he found a home in the family of James Howes, Esq. of New Sharon. In Sept. 
1823, he united with the church in that place. He was fitted for college at 
Farmington Academy, and entered Bowdoin College in the autumn of 1825. 
Receiving the honors of that college in 1829, he connected himself in the 
autumn of that year -.vlth the Theol. Sem. at Andover, where his purpose to 
become a missionary - which had for many years been maturing in his bosom - 
was strengthened and fully developed. A few weeks after completing his 
Theological course, he was ordained a missionary to the heathen, at Orleans, 
L^ass. October 10, 1832. The sermon was by Rev. Phineas Fisk, missionary to 
the Indians at tiishpee, LCass. from I/^t. vi.lO, "Thy kingdom come." During

Mr. K-unson spent the winter at batavia, studying the Chinese language 
end making other preparations for his exploring tour. He and Iv,r. Lyman 
sailed from that port, April 8, 1834; reached Padang in Sumatra on the 
26th where they spent a fortnight, collecting facts of various kinds; on 
the 12th of i.'.ay they set out in a iv.alay boat, and visited the islands of 
Batu and Nujas v;here they spent a month, and then proceeded to Tappanooly, 
on the west coast of Sumatra, where they arrived June 17, On the 23d of 
that month, they left that place, and endeavored to penetrate into the coun- 
try of the cattas; but v/ere, without the least Drovocation, massacred by that 
ferocious people, a race of cannibals, on the afternoon of Saturday, June

MISSION to the INDIAN ARCHTPELAaO 



IvnSSION to JAVA 



Lens desirous of establishing a mission in the Oriental Archipelago, 
and hoping that their missionaries might be safe under the protection of 
the Dutch government, the Board, in June 1836 sent out four missionaries 
ivith their wives, all members of the Reformed Dutch Church. Permission 
was at first given by the Dutch government that the missionaries might 
reside at Batavia; but it was soon found that they were to be greatly 
circumscribed in their efforts, and in the end permission was refused to 
all missionaries, except Dutch, to settle anywhere, except at Borneo. 
After a sojourn, in Batavia of over two years, the missionaries proceeded, 
\ first to explore, and then to establish themselves in that island.

The Dutch Governq:ent, having refused permission to our missionaries 
to settle anyv/here on islands under their control except in Borneo, a 
mission of the Am. Boeird was commenced on that island in June, 1839. An 
exploring tour had been performed in Borneo in October and November 1828. 

All the laborers in this field having removed, either to i'unoy, a 
more promising location, or having been compelled to withdraw by failing 
health, the mission to Borneo was suspended in 1849, and at length finally 
abandoned.

brought to Nev7 Kaven, ut. by Capt. brintnall in a ship belonging to that 
port, '.".'hich had touched at that island, on her return voyage from the North 
■^est coast of Aiierica. These three boj's, for such they '.vere, became knoTm 
to Kdvzin ".v. Dvaght, then a resident graduate at Yale College, and to Samuel 
John Llills, v;ho had just finished his college course at //illiamstown; and 
were imirediately placed under <-;hristian instruction and influence. Several 
other youths from those islands, and from other heathen lands, -/rere soon 

^ after discovered to be in this country. To provide for their education, and 
in the hope that they might ultimately become prepared, by divine grace, to 
become members of a ^^hristian mission to their native lands, the i^oreign 
Llission School at Cornv/all, Ot. was established in 1816, and received under 
the care of the American Board. In 1819, this institution contained thirty 
two pupils, seventeen of whom were from the aboriganal tribes of this 
country, and six natives of the united btates. 

The christian sympathies of our churches ware thus strongly drawn to 
the Sandv/ich islands, and on Friday, October 15, 1819, a mission church, 
destined to those islands, v/as formed in Park i>treet ohurch, -Boston, con- 
sisting of seventeen members, viz. Messrs . Bingham, Thurston, '.'/hitney, 
Ruggles, i-ianiel uhemberlain, £.lisha Loomis, vr. Thomas Holraan, and -their 
vTives, with three natives of the Sandwich Islands, Thomas Hopoo, John
